Re: HELP - what can I plant now?

The kohl rabi is quite a good one to sow as the pests don't seem to like it much. The slugs and snails have a nibble but the cabbage white butterflies and flea beetle don't seem to like it much. It tastes like a mild swede/neep and grows quite quickly. If you plant it now, you could be eating them ...

Re: Sorting out a severely burnt pan

geez!, i'd wonder what brown sauce does to your insides as well if it can shift burnt on food :shock: another good one is a dishwasher tablet if you've got one......cover the area with hot water pop in a tab and let it soak for a while, then scrub and repeat as necessary. i'm currently living in as ...

Re: Eco dating

I met my OH on a general friendship site and we are pretty eco! :mrgreen: my answer to this is, there are alot of players/time wasters about, and ...
